Pakistan appears to have mistaken its own pilot for Indian pilot, led to the lie about 2 Indian pilots being captured

Pakistani social media has been busy exaggerating the achievements of its Army since yesterday

Pakistani jets had violated Indian airspace on Wednesday morning and entered the border areas of Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district. They were pushed back by the Indian Air Force.

The Government had confirmed that the IAF had responded instantly to thwart its attempts. In the aerial engagement, one Pakistan jet was shot down by a MIG 21 Bison jet of the IAF. The IAF has said it had lost a Mig 21, while the pilot is believed to be in Pakistan’s captivity.

Pakistan had initially claimed that they had two Indian pilots in custody. Later, they backtracked from their initial statement and confirmed that they had the custody of only one Indian pilot.

Earlier today, news agency ANI had released the picture of the downed Pakistani F16 jet. Incidentally, the same picture was being circulated as a photograph of the downed Indian jet, however, analysis by IAF officers has confirmed that it is actually an F16, ANI has reported.

The image of the jet which is now reported to be one of Pakistan’s F16 provides some insight into how the Pakistanis came to believe that they had two Indian pilots under custody. As many on social media have pointed out, it appears that the Pakistanis were under the impression that they had managed to down two Indian jets and in the process, mistook one of their own pilots for an Indian.

The F16 pilot, who the Pakistan Army who appears to have been mistaken for an Indian, is believed to be receiving treatment at one of the Army hospitals in Pakistan.

The Pakistanis, meanwhile, are still busy peddling the ‘2 Indian jets downed’ theory despite the evidence which suggests that of the two jets downed, one of them was a Pakistani F16.

Pakistani social media has been busy exaggerating the achievements of its Army since yesterday. Initially, it was also claimed that their Air Force had played a part in the helicopter crash at Budgam district in J&K. It appeared extremely far-fetched even then and later, even the Pakistani Army stated profusely that they had nothing to do with it.
